St. Petersburg, Oct. 21. Telegrams
liave been received from (Jen. Kuro
patkin of such it reassuring nature that
the most confident optimism reigns in
the highest circles here. The impres
sion is given in these dispatches that
the Japanese have shot their bolt and
now are suffering from such exhaustion
that they must retreat quickly, while
on the other hand Kuropatkin is in
condition to assume a strong offensive
as soon as the rain stops.
Kuropatkin is confident that he can
throw off the Japanese to the west
ward, thus leaving the way open to
Port Arthur, which, it is calculated, he
could reach in three weeks.
Such is a summary of the ideas en
tertained here and which are causing
-great elation. Should success not
meet Kuropatkin's plans in the imme
diate future, the disapiioint nieiit here
will be more intense than ever before.

St. Petersburg. Oct. 21. Apart from
the skirmishes and exploits of scout
ing parties, there is almost a complete
suspension of ojierat ions in Manchuria.
Rain, impassable roads and exhausted
armies are factors sulficient in them
selves to explain the cessation of hos
tilities. and these conditions are ag
gravated by a dense fog overspreading
the win lie of the theatre of war.

SMALL RIOT AT
Acid Thrown on Nurses Who Failed
to Invite Medical Students
to a Ball.
Chicago, Oct. 21. In a general riot
at the Illinois Dental College last
night four nurses were injured by acid
throwers and the matron of the insti
tution was also hurt. Two hundred
dental students caused the riot. Their
intended victims were 2un medical stu
dents, but instead the attacking party
injured many girls.
A dance was in progress in the ball
room of the dental college at Honore
street and Jackson boulevard. It was
given by the nurses from the West
Side hospital. They had invited as
their escorts about 2uu students from
the College of Physicians and Sur
geons.. The students from the Illinois Den
tal college were not invited. Some of
them accordingly met and decided on
revenge. About 11 o'clock they de
scended upon the hall in a body. They
first broke in the doors, went into the
basement and turned out all the lights
in the building. Then they rushed up
the stairs to the dance hall on the
fourth floor yelling at the tops of their

Reaction From Tariff
Stimulation in Ohio
ADVERSE TO LABOR
In Spite of Growth in Popula
tion in Year Activities
Cleveland, Ohio, Oct. 21. This city
has suffered more than any other large
center in the United States from the
unnatural industrial condition stimu
lated by the Dingley tariff law, and not
tetnpeued by wise forethought concern
ing future possibilities. As an index
to this fact it may be stated that Cleve
land increased its population during
the last 12 months by probably 2". Out)
people, which would normally mean a
very precept ible development of Its
business, yet the bank statement just
issued for the week ending Oct. HI,

ponding week of last year a net de
crease of i::.n per cent.
If one today should take a walk
along the extended stretch of mills
and factories situated on the lake front
of Cleveland, he would find it to ho an
almost invariable rule that from 10 to
per cent of the usual number of em
ployees is either laid off entirely or
working on short time. An even worse
condition of affairs will be found tit
Newburgh. across the river, where the
immense loe-nl plant of the United
States Steel corporation is situated.
Go, also, into the retail stores here in
Cleveland and ii will be found that
trade is practically stationary in spite
of the large accre tion of the population.
Retailers are- buying only small stocks
for future? trade, and the utmost con
servatism governs their ver action.
Mirny Med Mills lille.
The most typical situation in Cleve
land is that of the mills of the steel
trust. The Newburgh plant was for
merly the backbone of the American
St i'i l and Wire company. Twelve
thousand men aro employed there un

great mills had run continuously for
more than three years, delving the usu

closed clown iu the spring of this year,
and the fires in many of them are still
banked. Thousands of men were thus
thrown (jut of e-mploynient. Even when
the mills started up again a few we-e ks
ago there was a practically horizontal
cut in the wages of all employes of
from 7 to l." pe-r cent. This was a most
serious matter to men who had been
out of work entirely for several
Inquire for an explanation of the
idleness of these mills and the reply
will be, "lack of demand." The fact
is that under the protection eif the tar
iff law, tie? steel trust has been able
to push all its prices up to such a diz
zy figure that all exempt the most ur
gent demand has been killed off. So
vital to American commerce is the steed
industry that this fact has caused a

other trades. And yet all the time the;
